Outcast 1.1 is an updated version of the 1999 game Outcast. Following an unsuccessful Kickstarter crowd funding campaign for a complete HD reboot after acquiring the rights in 2013, the original version was updated with various improvements to make it compatible with modern systems. Technical enhancements include a multithreaded voxel renderer for higher performance and software bilinear filtering on polygonal meshes. This version supports higher resolutions and includes new high-resolution sky paintings and a redesigned HUD to match the higher resolutions. It also includes a launcher for settings (such as the voiced language selection and subtitles) and has native support for gamepads. Content-wise it is largely identical, but a number of bugs have been fixed and there is improved stability.
Owners of the GOG version receive the 1.1 update for free.
